Panel of Sant Jaume

The Calella Chapel of El Roser of Calella served as a backdrop for this 19th–century panel.

This panel from the early 19th century is made of one hundred and ninety-two tiles and shows Saint James with two pilgrims in the landscape of Calella, with the Roser chapel in view. It is the work of Joan Baptista Guivernau and is crowned by the arms of Calella. It is full of colour, although the blue and oxides such as Naples yellow and apple green dominate and convey a spirit of calm.
